CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Voters in about a dozen Illinois counties had their say on the proposed one-percent sales tax to be used for school facilities.
That includes voters in Peoria, McLean, Mason and Fulton counties.
Illinois introduced the new sales tax new option for voters in 2007 as a shift away from property tax funding.
Since then, the option has been approved in 18 Illinois counties and rejected in more than twice that number.
Voters in Fulton and Mason counties approved the sales tax increase but voters in Peoria and McLean counties shot it down.
